Vegro Ingredients – vegan-friendly composts

Posted on

Any vegan or vegetarian gardener can rest assured that the Vegro ingredients go through many quality checks.

How Vegro vegan-friendly compost is produced

Fertile Fibre’s raw materials are first checked for quality. They are  then processed, blended and packed according to the local and international standards set down by the National accreditation scheme affecting that product. This gives us complete satisfaction that all raw materials are consistent, efficiently sourced and organically farmed.

On arrival at our factory, we have a full traceability scheme from delivery to warehouse, storage and stock to mixing, and finally to delivery. We hold records from the state of the delivery lorry to the name of the driver on dispatch.

Production process

First the coir is soaked. This ensures its structure and consistency is preserved. Then nutrients are added. These are totally organic and Soil Association approved. They are finely ground to ensure thorough dispersion through the coir base. pH is neutral. Our quality control verifies that pH remains in the range 5.4–6.0.

Our organic nutrients form part of Vegro ingredients. They released gradually and in low concentrations. This reduces the need for top-up feeding. Competitor’s coir products may have had chemicals added so can’t provide this benefit. This has been proven in ADAS testing.
